OGC seeks public comment on update of OGC® Abstract Specification Topic 11: Metadata from ISO 19115:2003 to ISO 19115:2014

Apr 7, 2016 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) requests public comment on the update of OGC Abstract Specification Topic 11: Metadata from ISO 19115:2003 to ISO 19115:2014.

The update has been approved by the OGC Architecture Board (OAB) and the Metadata Domain Working Group (DWG). The period for public comment ends 07 May, 2016.

ISO 19115-1:2014 defines the schema required for describing geographic information and services by means of metadata. It provides information about the identification, the extent, the quality, the spatial and temporal aspects, the content, the spatial reference, the portrayal, distribution, and other properties of digital geographic data and services.

The OGC and ISO TC / 211, who is maintaining ISO 19115, are committed to aligning standards when possible. Many OGC standards are adopted into ISO, and OGC references fundamental ISO Standards as part of its own Standards Baseline. The ISO 19115 metadata Standard was updated in 2014 and numerous organizations now mandate the use of this most recent version. OGC proposes to update its baseline Abstract Specification Topic 11 (Metadata) to this most recent version of ISO 19115. Note that OGC standards which currently reference the previous version of ISO 19115 will not automatically reference the new version, rather each can be updated as needed in new versions.

The ‘ISO 19115-1:2014 Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 1: Fundamentals’ document is available for review and comment at:  www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/151

The review period closes 07 May, 2016.
